In the 19th century local banks proliferated, financed by local citizens. Many went bust but some, like the Stockton on Tees Bank, merged with larger banks to survive. The Stockton on Tees Bank was taken over by the precursors of the Barclays Bank we know today. As part of the process, Barclays honoured the note issue and to show that this had been done, the signature panel was cut out. As every time a note was issued it was required for stamp duty to be paid, these notes were circulated extensively to avoid new duty being paid. The vast bulk of the Stockton on Tees notes that we see are very well circulated but we recently bought a group which were cancelled the usual way but are in much much higher grade. Here we present the Stockton on Tees £5 note dated in the 1880’s-90’s in circulated condition.

Picture of Victoria, Crown (Jubilee Head) 1889 Very Good/Fine

Victoria, Crown (Jubilee Head) 1889 Very Good/Fine

This Sterling Silver Crown of Queen Victoria still had the Jubilee Head of Victoria on it. It was also the largest silver coin issued at the time. Robert Cecil, Marquis of Salisbury was our Prime Minister. Birmingham had been granted status as a city and the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds was founded. Preston North End won the FA Cup and Charlie Chaplin was born. This Crown or 5 Shilling piece was a considerable amount of money at the time, it was Sterling Silver and our largest non gold coin. Victoria is on one side with her hair done up in a bun for the Jubilee and the reverse had St. George slaying the dragon. 1889 is not the easiest date to find of the series and all the coins on offer are in Very Good/Fine condition. Which considering they are now 128 years old is quite fantastic.

After World War Two, the Ministry of Defence issued banknotes which were to be used on British bases all over the world. This was done to prevent black marketeering and lasted until the late 1980’s when the Berlin Wall came down and British bases in Germany were gradually run down. The use of this special military currency ceased. These Uncirculated 1 shilling notes were prepared for issue in 1962 (PM28b) and were part of a group which the Ministry of Defence sold in the late 1980’s. Before they could be sold they were cancelled with 2 holes. Crisp Uncirculated and very very rarely seen uncancelled.
